MGR/Jake the Snake Plummer's review"Randall RH200 G2 Series"

Randall RH 200 G2
I paid 550 canadian for this amp in Quebec city. I also bought an CXM 412 300 watts to go with it.

I also bought a Randall, because of Dimebag and Scott Ian

Powerful, and before buying it, make sure you can place it in a room where not too much noise will get out of there

Not too expensive

I like the Chorus on the clean channel, it sounds very well. Same for the Reverb.

Also, the pedal that comes with it is perfect. You can select the chorus, reverb, gain, and a clear boost that absolutely rocks

I haven't had the time to use it a lot but it sounds great thus far

the distortion is not great, I prefer my Metal Zone MT2 on the clear channel with a clean boost

but as I said I haven't had the time to use it a lot

built like a tank of the US Army ... not the Canadian Army

Everybody says that Randall offers the best quality for price products, well they are right. This amp (brand new) costed me a bit more than 1 000 bucks before taxes.

Randall RH 200 G2
Head Randall RH 200 G2 is a head while transistor.
His power is 200 W

She has extensive connections:
- 4 inputs baffles
- An effects loop with send and return control
- A line out

It has three channels:
A clean
2 overdrive's
clean and crunch channel have a separate EQ (bass, mid, treble, presence). However, the crunch channel, it has only one and two EQ knobs to adjust the gains of specific gain.
The clean has a boost. Very handy in a lot of uses.
A switch to switch from one channel to another and from one to another overdrive.

A contour switch is on the beast, but it is of low efficiency.
More interesting is the presence of a chorus and a spring reverb neither good nor bad.

[4] for the contour knob unnecessary and third channel that is not really one.


Finding a way forward with this amp is pretty simple. However, it was a problem of volume differences between clean and overdrive (not resolved from the SC series ... maybe with the G3). Another difficulty is that it's hard to go from 1-2 in overdrive with her immediately as one wishes. Randall will have to do more homework.

[4] There's significantly less headlock on the market, but it's still fairly intuitive



The clean sound is not a reference but in many surprises. It has heat and a lot of pleasure. I prefer, myself, play with the equalizer for that channel to give it shine and slamming.
The crunch provides a purist punk rock and pop it to their heart. Here the single coils are light enough to express themselves correctly and sounds decidedly rock rained down easily.

For those who like the heavy, channel 2 crunch offer him significantly more potatoes. The sounds are metal or trash at the party on that channel.


The distortion of this amp meets the characteristics of the instrument and the sound is very accurate. We hear all the variations in the game, making it an amp designed for lovers of scratches. It is impossible to obtain by natural sound typical of the bold new metal today. The solution here is to connect an amp or pedal that "salira" sound.

A little less for the effects loop that drives the sound and gives a dull sound at all (I strongly recommend connecting the front, but nice experiences are always possible).

[6] Drinking the guy. The small changes from the G2 series is sensitive. We regret the disappearance of his vintage Randall, but the sound is modern and well put together as a selling point. The effects loop is unnecessary, but the success of sounds and a real personality to keep the transistor's rating average.


- In quality / price: 300 Eur for what I paid the head (600 Eur with 4x12 cabinet) NEW, there's no picture 10/10.
- The side indestructible and always ready
- A wide range of sounds for a head seems so basic at first
- Respect for the quality of the instrument
- Suitable for indoor repeat

- Differences in volume
- There should be a third complete equalization into a direct competitor of MESA
- The effects loop that drives the sound (in this connection on the front of rigor)


[4] The poor ergonomics and sound in the medium can not make that face a serious challenger for the high end. But the price / quality ratio, and expected longevity of the machine will delight the young musicians.

Note 5 is equivalent to the average home

Randall RH 200 G2
Amp transistors only.

200 Watts, dual output for the full-stack (! Parallel outputs -> check your impedance!)
everything is in mono jack, except for the footswitch connector (have not tested the headphone output ...)
two channels to separate volume + volume general. Provided only effect: reverb controllable by the footswitch.

Effects loop with footswitch input gain and output gain adjustment.


No brainer, it connects and it plays. No problem for the designation of the role of connectors.

In sound: I'll be honest, it depends on everyone.
**** I was (and still am) amazed the clean channel, with its "clean boost" very nice, I use to release a solo with a preamp that does not feature "solo boost ".
**** For the channel distortion, and of two types of distortion are available, both with a contour with generous options. (Type of gain footswitch).
**** Opportunity to attack the amplification stage directly with a preamp. not know why this amp is much more generous with this connection ...

About the manual: I honestly have not read it. They propose some adjustments which are acceptable, but you have to work the sound anyway.


I play metal, not heavy, sometimes hardcore.
I play Ibanez RG570 and jackson DKMGT active. I also use a preamp GX700.

Plugged into a Behringer stack full, it is powerful :-)

The price / quality ratio is for me the best of the entire market. Very reliable results.

I got a solution to the transistor, simply for lack of budget for the full lights. So I will not leave with the idea of ​​discovering something other than marshall. And more with a very attractive price.


I have no complaints. Solid material, I play with confidence, but it will wear it :-)

My idea was to find a solution until a full budget for the lamps. So I found Randall, and I intend to do a long way with my RH200G2.

My rating of 8 / 10: PCQ just what counts, not the brand c, c no references, it is only the sound coming out. And no matter what you will, without lights, you're never really completely satisfied with your result. So a 10 would be a lie. 8 expresses a pleasant surprise that I was getting a more than satisfactory result.

UPDATE: I sell the equipment, since I (finally) the budget for an all-tube power amp. A word
